ARGUMENT (argument)

don’t don’t don’t don’t go









because
you have to.
I’m like
you
in that
I don’t want
to
have
this
con
ver
sa
tion
right now
either.
so don’t go
unless
you want to.

don’t,
don’t stay,
though,
because
if you really loved me
(if you REALLY
loved me)
you would make
my life
easier
even when Shakespeare says that
that’s not
what love should

be.

but what
does
a
dead guy know
about love “these days”
a
n
y
way?

you know me
know I’m not
articulate
(in nicer words,
emotionally
stunted)
I’m not articulate.
I’m not that
person
who
says what’s on her mind.
maybe
m
a
y
b
e
that’s
what
one
might
think
looking at me
(I’ve got a
LOUD
look)
but you don’t think
(yes, of course you think, that’s not… I only meant that… ugh, BOYS)

you know.
